Colts GM Ryan Grigson: Dwight Freeney 'Is A Colt, Period'

Despite reports speculating on the contrary, the Indianapolis Colts aren't moving Dwight Freeney. The All-Pro defensive end will remain in Indy through 2012, as GM Ryan Grigson confirmed today to Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star.

“Everyone knows Dwight’s a great player. He’s going to be here this year,” Grigson said. “He hopes and fully expects to be a major contributor and a guy who strikes fear in our opponents and offensive lines every week.

“He’s a Colt, period.”

Freeney is under contract for next season -- his base salary will be $14 million, and he'll count against the Colts' cap number for a massive $19 mil. Nevertheless, Grigson has vowed that he won't trade Freeney, nor will he attempt to restructure the veteran end's deal prior to the 2012 season.

Freeney has been a Colt for his entire 10-year pro career. The Colts' first-round pick in the 2002 NFL draft (No. 11 overall), Freeney has amassed 256 tackles over the course of his career, including 102.5 sacks.
